when to buy containers

When it comes time to get organized, is your first step a trip to your favorite store to pick up storage bins? If so, and if you haven’t always been satisfied with your organizing efforts, tuck this tip into your back pocket:

Declutter first... Buy containers second.

Here’s why: When you declutter you let go of things you no longer use, need, or love. This gives you a better feel for which items need to be stored and where to store them, leading to smarter container selection – and happier end results!

And remember: don't keep it unless you love it, need it, can't easily replace it, and it loves you back!
